Mike Moore of Fernie BC is training for the biggest race of his life, the Sinister 7. This ultra marathon in the Crownest Pass is 148km with over 5,250m of elevation gain. Yes, it's sinister. Learn more about how he got into running and how he is preparing for this big event in this month's "Racers' Corner".
“I borrowed his sister’s bike, and it was love at first ride,” she says. Her falling for the sport reignited Troy’s passion and soon they decided to make the move to the Crowsnest Pass fulfilling their dream of living in the mountains. “That’s when we started riding in Fernie, and I can honestly say that out of anywhere I have ever rode my bike, Fernie is easily my favourite.”
Mike Rumpel came across his athletic abilities “late” in life. “My first solo race was in Utah. Jesse Mong approached me on a whim and I had no idea what I was getting into. I discovered that 1. I enjoyed it and 2. I was pretty good at it,” he says. Mike was always active growing up but mostly just “participated”.
